Parasailing for the First Time? Here is What You Need to Know

Parasailing, also known as parascending, paraskiing or parakiting, is a recreational kiting activity where a person is towed behind a vehicle while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that resembles a parachute, known as a parasail wing. The manned kite’s moving anchor may be a car, truck, or boat.
A person is pulled behind a vehicle (often a boat) while tied to a specially made canopy wing that mimics a parachute, known as a parasail wing. Parasailing is also known as parascending or parakiting. The moving anchor for the manned kite might be a car, truck, or boat. The tow line connects the boat or land vehicle to the parasail, which is attached to the pilot by the harness. The automobile then speeds off, lifting the surfer and passenger into the air. Two or three individuals can parasail behind a boat simultaneously if it has enough power. Little to no control over the parachute is given to the parascender. To avoid confusion, the activity is largely a pleasure ride.
